King's Arms Oxford Reviews
Oxford pub with a view Jul 12, 2012
Built in 1607, The King's Arms is reputedly the oldest standing pub in Oxford. The aroma of 400 years of spilt beer and vomit tends to cling to these old pubs, and The King's Arms is no exception. This is a minor quibble though compared to the many reasons to like The King's Arms (such as free wifi, a choice of bars and rooms, decent food).
The thing I like most about this pub are the tables on Parks Road that look out across Broad Street. Very few bars in Oxford have a front outdoor area, where you can sit, drink and people watch during the middle of the day. And none offer the same vista as The King's Arms, one that includes the Sheldonian Theatre and Radcliffe Camera.
